LSU gymnasts keep rolling

The LSU athletic department is building quite the women's sports juggernaut.

Everyone know of Sylvia Fowles and the Lady Tigers' basketball success. Plenty of people know about Yvette Girouard's softball teams and the trips to the Women's College World Series.

But, as is the case in most places nationally, D-D Breaux's LSU gymnastics program flies a bit under the radar.

That may change in the next couple of years. Already the Lady Tigers are ranked eighth in the country and have a long resume of national success. This year, LSU is young.

The Lady Tigers have nine freshmen and sophomores on the roster this year. They'll need big performances from the likes of sophomores Susan Jackson, Summer Hubbard and elder statesmen Kristi Esposito and Ashleigh Clare-Kearney if they are to live up to that lofty national ranking when it matters most.
